Wear it Everywhere
I've been wanting to buy an Ibex shirt for quite some time, but couldn't decide on which one. I finally decided on this one and could not be happier with the decision! This is the perfect weight to wear year round, either as a layer in the winter, or on it's own in warmer weather. I would probably be sized as a medium (5'8", 155 lbs.), however I felt it was a little small in the chest. I didn't want the tight fit, so I went with a large and it's perfect! The length of the medium and large, including the sleeve length seemed fairly similar. The main difference appeared to be in the chest.

Great Base Layer!
This is a really comfortable base layer. Fits too small to wear as a pullover out on the town unless you go up a couple if sizes. This is typical Ibex high quality.

Soft wool that keeps its shape
This shirt is quickly becoming my favorite shirt for fall/winter. I am 5'6" and 150 lbs and the small fits perfect. In this shirt, I am completely comfortable between 55 and 70 degrees. I like the zip-neck, and the fit is "athletic," but not form-fitting. Yes, the shirt is expensive, but I think it's worth it.

Start with Ibex
I have started to diversify my clothes and decided to try this one from Ibex. It is quite good and keeps you warm on those morning excursions. For my body type it is a good fit, not too tight and not too loose. It has a nice strong zipper. Would recommend it again.

Excellent winter top for runners
I serve as director for a fall/winter marathon training group in southeast Louisiana and I've just recently discovered the virtues of merino wool compared to the synthetic mircofiber fabrics common to high-end running gear. I grew up in the cold midwest, but I'll tell anyone who will listen, the coldest days I've ever felt have been here in the New Orleans area - it's a damp cold that can penetrate to the bone. The Ibex Zepher Zip-T seems to ideal long-sleeve performance top for our climate. The lightweight 18.5 micron merino wool keeps me toasty during early minutes of training, but it doesn't overcook me when I'm up to speed and warmed-up. The deep zipper allows for a little extra ventilation if needed and the fit is an athletic form-fit but not too tight. As with any Ibex piece, the quality is top-notch and it looks like it will withstand the test of time. No itching at all and zero stink, even after a few runs and no washing. I wasn't too jazzed about the color selection and I would love for Ibex to consider one really bright color each season to allow for increased night visibility. I chose the royal blue. Sizing seemed spot on. Highly recommended, great top for runners!
